The municipalities carry out their own administrative waste management tasks, such as the supervision of compliance with waste management regulations.

The company is responsible for the statutory waste management of its partner municipalities. This covers waste transportation and handling, as well as giving information and announcements related to waste management. There are some 130,000 residents within Lakeuden Etappi Oy’s operating area. Waste services are also offered to companies by agreement.

The services include the emptying of property-specific waste containers. Additionally, the operating area includes eco points for reusable waste, at least one waste station in each municipality, and a waste management centre in Ilmajoki.

The company has a biogas plant which produces biogas and fertilizer from biowaste and municipal sludge. Etappi is the largest owner of Westenergy Oy’s waste to energy plant operating in Mustasaari.

Waste stations accept all sorted reusable waste and hazardous waste from households free of charge. Waste management is funded by eco and waste charges.

We offer functional waste management for the good of our customers and the environment
